At the Cancer Center of Western WI, we think of a cancer survivor as anyone who’s diagnosed and living with cancer.
There are 3 stages of survivorship:
- Diagnosis and active treatment
- Right after active treatment
- Long-term survivorship
Our team of Oncology experts works together to create an individualized survivorship plan for breast cancer patients. Following active treatment, our Nurse Practitioner will meet with breast cancer patients to provide a cancer treatment summary and offer support of healthy living. This collaborative effort encourages patients to talk through any questions or concerns they may have.
